We have gathered much local information from various sources and have put this together in a new book with the above title. It is a volume of the history and heritage of the local area with many photos which have not been seen in public before, (so thanks to those who contributed the images).
The tales are real stories of local folk from the East Neuk, detailing their childhood and adult experiences over their lifetimes, as well as some humorous anecdotes. One excerpt of the story ‘Skipper dupes a German U-boat’ is as follows “The submarine went alongside another fishing boat the Andrewina, skipper Alex Watson. The crew were having tea in the cabin before starting to haul their nets when they felt something strike the side of their boat. The skipper’s son went to go up the ladder and found two Germans looking down at him with revolvers in their hands. The crew were ordered on deck and the Germans helped them launch their small boat before placing a fuse bomb fore and aft.”
Available now in A5 size with 270 pages and over 180 photos the book will be available in local outlets in Pittenweem and Anstruther priced at £12. There is more information on our Facebook page, and it can also be purchased on the site pfma.bigcartel.com if posting is required (£2.75 p&p).
Think ahead, this will make a great Christmas present.
